This is very depressing...LE may have their videos they are holding back, but I feel they have very little to go on, as far as getting any closer to finding Lauren.
Police will not hold any news conferences over the weekend. The next one is scheduled for Monday at 11:30 am.
America's Most Wanted will run Lauren's story a second time Saturday night.
Police say witnesses reported that she visited a party at an 11th Street apartment complex and was last seen walking alone near 11th and College, in the direction of her apartment building.
Interesting choice of words-an individual or a party?
Hello WS community! This is my first post, I've been waiting for my account to be activated so that I could contribute... I would consider myself somewhat of a photo-guru, and when I saw the photos of the truck released on the news I knew there was more than enough pixel information to play around with and extract the "unseen" image data. I assume that the FBI has already taken these steps, but I haven't seen any serious enhancements posted here beyond simple brightness/contrast tweaking so I thought I might be able to help by posting something more useful.
This is just one of the many many enhancement layers that I got down to. I can post more if needed but I wanted to get this one out here because it is one of the clearest pictures I was able to get of the person in the bed of the truck. The second image is an enlargement of the bed area and it very clearly shows the individual's facial dimensions. I am no expert in facial recognition technology, but based on my limited knowledge of how it works, this image of the individual in the back of the tuck might be sufficient enough to compare with a photo of LS using facial recognition software. That might be a long shot, but it might just be a huge lead if it does in fact match LS's facial features.
I am also working on an enhancement of the graphic printed on the side of the vehicle from the other photo using a combination of the pixel information on the side of the truck and the information in its reflected off of the store window... It is a difficult fix but hopefully I will be able to post those results at some point later today.
Hello WS community! This is my first post,
Hi, and nice work HK-416!
I ran some high pass on these photos last night, and spooked myself in the wee hours of last night.
I, like you, also see a face. However, it's human nature to want to see faces in things, and I am sure (or I would hope) LE wouldn't be releasing information like this IF there was a perp in the back of the car?
I still see a person there though; thin nose, long face and blond hair (could be the light in the scene though.There is a hot spot there on the hood of the cab.)
This could just be me as well, but on the other photo, the one facing the passenger side of the car, it appears that there is someone in the passenger seat.
I ran high pass and emboss on that first photo as well and wonder if that is possibly a light rack on top of the truck??
